The fighting Sunday is the latest in days of fighting in Mogadishu. Resident Abdinasir Ali says he saw six bodies from the same family. They were killed when a mortar shell hit their house.

Witnesses say four others have been killed in a nearby house and a tea shop.

Medina hospital official Dahir Mohamed Mohamud said 60 people have been admitted this weekend.
